Poetic Justice

It is poetic justice that the insanely greedy Canadians who sold their grandkids down the river, turning their lands into a toxic waste dump for the lure of riches and jobs will get nothing. The only people who will benefit from these jobs will be the Chinese. They will get the jobs because they work at 50% pay. The whole exercise is to benefit China and let it pollute the planetary atmosphere with CO₂. We do this to let them stall getting on with clean energy. A few people will get rich, but not the people who live in the tar sands and pipeline regions.

Hypothetical Enemies

By far the biggest threat to Canadian security is climate change. There are hundreds of different ways it seriously threatens us. Yet Prime Minister Harper wants to spend nothing on climate change and the lions’s share of our defence budget on F35 fighters, a weapon specialised for fighting geographically localised wars serviceable by aircraft carrier such as the Iraq war. F35s are useless for patrolling the vast expanses of Canada’s frozen north because they don’t have the range or the ability to handle low temperatures. In just what scenarios does Mr. Harper plan to use these weapons to defend Canada and against which hypothetical enemies? He never tells us. Why is he doing this? The only answer I can think of is corruption. Why else but he is taking bribes, perhaps technically legal bribes or he is under undisclosed threats? Can you think of other possible motives?
